William Kentridge: Ambivalent Affinities and Projects
October 4 - December 11, 2010
Reception: Thursday, October 7, 6:00–8:00 p.m. These two shows are the first solo-exhibitions of Kentridge’s work in the Boston. Through diverse media Kentridge examines his native South African society and the aftermath of apartheid. He probes his subjects from within, giving visual and dramatic form to what is often left unsaid: the complicity, regret, the ambivalence toward one’s affinity with a place that could be so familiar yet so brutal. Several animated films, prints, anamorphic drawings, and sculptural work will be on view.
